Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon
96 points in James Suckling - "There's so much peppermint and spice on the nose as well as walnuts, cedar and eucalyptus, and even crab apples. Lime zest, lots of ash and burnt oranges, too. The freshness here really takes your breath away and there's pinpoint accuracy of blue and black fruit. Full body, vibrant acidity, very well integrated tannins and a mineral-driven finish. Hard to resist now but better in 2019."
94 points in Wine Enthusiast - "This powerful, savory bottling named for the two generations behind the family winery opens with toasted barrel and meat aromas before expanding on the nose and palate with additional black pepper and soy components. The fruit is distinctly spicy—a mix of blackberry, clove and cinnamon."
91 points in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five shows beautiful purity, not the weight, profound depth and structure of the 2013, but it is still medium to full-bodied, elegant, graceful and a classic example of the Stags Leap appellation. Drink it over the next 15+ years."
90 points in Wine Spectator - "Austere and aromatic, with grippy tannins and a trim band of dark berry, cedar, black licorice and loamy earth flavors. This slowly works into a more harmonious groove on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2028. "
พันธุ์องุ่นผสม (Grape Blended)
One Point Five is an elegant, silky Cabernet Sauvignon with soft tannins and abundant fruit that is approachable when young, yet capable of aging gracefully. This wine reflects the climate and soils of our Stags Leap District vineyard sites and Shafer’s commitment to meticulous, sustainable farming and quality winemaking.
The glass comes alive with aromas of crushed red and black summer berries, rose petal and herbs. In the mouth the generous, lush black and red fruits integrate enticingly with sage, tobacco leaf, smoke and black spice all wrapped within a structure of ripe Stags Leap District tannins. The finish is long and pleasurable.
